Making plans


Hello all. Nicole here sharing a planner page I created  for December using the November “Swan Lake” kit. I love the exclusive flair and journaling cards that came in this month’s kit. They really compliment the kit nicely. We even included a unicorn flair. SO cool! For my planner page, I used my square punch to punch a few squares from the journaling cards, cut-apaarts and die cuts and adhered them to the planner. I also used some stamps and transparency die cuts. I really like the variety of embellishments in this month’s kit.


Here are some closer shot:




Thanks for visiting today!


Soften Up That Chipboard!

Happy Craft & Hobby Mega Show weekend everyone!  Jody is here on the blog today while Gia, Lacey and Erica and super busy ‘working’ at CHA!! I have to say it sure doesn’t feel like ‘work’ when we totally love what we are doing!!  This has been an amazing year for us for sure!

I am completely in love with our January Kit Tailor Made.  What’s not to love, right?!  Amy Tangerine, Chic Tags, May Arts Ribbon, plus our January Challenge Sponsor Creative Embellishments!!  Here’s my latest layout created with Tailor Made.

Here are some close ups for you!  As you can see, the triangles are white in my layout.  They came a plain brown color but I really wanted them to have a softer look.  I decided to heat emboss them with Ranger White Embossing Power to achieve this look.  It’s very easy to do! All you need to do is to press the chipboard pieces into your Versamark ink pad to get them nice and sticky.  Then, just shake some embossing power of your choice over the pieces and heat set them!

In the photo below you get a much closer look at the little finishing touches I added along the right side of my photo.  I fussy cut a bunch of the little hearts from the super sweet Amy Tangerine paper with all the little watercolor hearts inside the Polaroids.  I also added some teal ink to a few fabulous little Heidi Swapp resist die cuts.  I still wanted to add a little soft sparkle on this layout so I added some 10 mm Moonshine sequins and silver triangle sequins which are not in the kit.  The little photo negative acetate piece is from Tim Holtz (from my stash.)

Locker Room: Jody’s Smiley Clouds :)

Blog 4

Oh happy, smiley Friday CK fans!! I’m back with a light and airy layout featuring this sweet & whimsical paper by Studio Calico called Up & Away.  So fun!!   I’m so excited about this kit and I’m thinkin’ you all are too.  The papers are unique and the embellishments are just fabulous!  Like Erica mentioned yesterday, this kit is sold out, but you can visit our Clique Kits store and check out all the new inventory we’ve added…swoon!!

Now, because this paper is so super cute, I didn’t want to cover it all up.  So to keep it ‘light’, I added a 4×4 inch Instagram photo of our Abby, on top of a couple layers of papers from Studio Tekturek, Sodalicious and Studio Calico, then I added a Maggie Holmes Fabric Frame on top.  Next up, the cut files!!  I cut a couple of our exclusive Clique Kits cut files and placed them onto my layout.  The files are “Hide & Seek” and the super cool sunglasses.  Aren’t they fabulous!!

To keep my layout feeling light and airy, I added some scattered embellishment clusters and my favorite May Arts pink burlap string.  I swirled the pink burlap string into some whimsical circles to highlight the words and elements already built into the Up & Away Paper.  This made it easy to not add much more to my layout.  Check out all of the Study Abroad kit embellishments right HERE in our school store.

And here are a few more follow up photos.  The white heart paper clip is from Stampin Up! and the chevron shaped wood veneer is from the fabulous Pink Fresh Studios!  As you can see, I also added some of my handwriting to this layout in small bits.  I used the Pink Fresh Enamel Label Frames to frame out some small bits of journaling ~ August 2014 and ABBY GRACE along the right side of the layout.  I also added some Bella Blvd black arrow stickers from my stash around my layout for some more fun contrast!

Just like the wording on this paper “oh what a beautiful day!”  I hope you’ve enjoyed my layout today!  If you haven’t heard yet, Clique Kits kicked off it’s first monthly challenge this month.  It’s Anything Goes with a twist, a twist of Pink Fresh Studios that is!  Check our the Challenge Post here.

Have a great day everyone!
